Words Matter – How To Create Content For Your Cannabis Business 

Websites, blogs, press releases, social media and plenty of other platforms require you to create content. The content can be in the form of videos, text or images but you need to be able to create professional quality content on a regular basis. Good content educates and entertains your current and prospective customers. It reinforces their buying decision, or compels them to make a purchase.

Here’s some good guidance on creating compelling content:

Focus On The Audience: Current customers may be well versed in all things cannabis and are looking for information about new products, new studies, new ways of doing things. Novices may still need basic information about different types of products, their effects, how to use them, and more. This audience may not understand all the industry jargon or acronyms, so you’ll need to spell some things out. Blogs with this education, or FAQs on your website go a long way towards assuaging fears, and “holding the hand” of newcomers. Use clear, accessible language to demystify cannabis topics and answer common questions.

Stay Informed and Compliant: Keep up-to-date with the latest laws and regulations regarding cannabis marketing in your region. Ensure all your content is compliant, avoiding any claims or statements that could be construed as medical advice without proper backing.

Use a Variety of Formats: Diversify your content by using different formats, such as blog posts, videos, infographics, podcasts, and social media posts. Different formats can cater to various preferences in your audience, making your content more engaging and accessible.

Tell Your Brand’s Story: Share your brand’s mission, values, and the stories behind your products. Storytelling can create an emotional connection with your audience, differentiate your brand, and build trust.

Leverage SEO Strategies: Optimize your content for search engines by incorporating relevant keywords, especially those related to cannabis topics that your audience is searching for. This can increase your visibility online and attract organic traffic to your website.

Encourage Interaction and Feedback: Make your content interactive by encouraging comments, questions, and feedback. Engage with your audience by responding to their interactions, which can build a community and foster loyalty.

Provide Social Proof: Share customer testimonials, reviews, and case studies to provide social proof and demonstrate the effectiveness and quality of your products. This can help in building trust with potential customers.

Collaborate with Influencers and Experts: Partner with influencers and experts in the cannabis industry to co-create content or to feature in your content. This can help in reaching a broader audience and lending credibility to your brand.

Monitor Performance and Adapt: Regularly track the performance of your content using analytics tools to understand what resonates with your audience. Use these insights to refine your content strategy, focusing on what works best.

Focus on Quality and Consistency: Ensure your content is of high quality, both in terms of the information provided and the presentation. Consistency in publishing schedule and content quality helps in keeping your audience engaged and building a reliable brand image.
